A typical mid-'80s Toy might sport a rough-riding 3-inch lift kit and 33-inch tires. Gear swaps to lower ratios became common to keep some sane highway power, and a few companies such as Gleason and Toshiki-Fuji supplied limited slips or lockers. Rock armor wasn't as abundant as it is today, so bumpers and nerfs were more cosmetic than functional.
